Confessions of a Stitch Wraith blogaversary giveaway

Hi everyone,
I sure hope you are enjoying all this fall-like weather.  I sure am.  I just wanted to let you know that Terri from Confessions of a Stitch Wraith is having a wonderful blogaversary giveaway on her blog.  One for US (goodie bag) and one for Canada/International (gift certificate).  Here is her address:  http://stitchwraith.blogspot.com 

I also have a few updates.  I am on section 3 of the I Love Paris SAL.

I am also doing the Halloween SAL on Facebook.  Hope to make more progress this weekend.  My husband took Monday and Tuesday off so it cuts into my stitching time.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

pillow and ornament finishes and some WIPS

Good evening everyone,

I hope you are having a great day. I have had a fun time finishing my finishes.    I found some fat quarters at Walmart last week so I was able to make my pillows.  I am so happy how they turned out.


In addition, this afternoon I made my Ink Circles finish into an ornament.  My son took this picture and I thought he did well for 6 years old.  He decided since it was his favorite color he would keep it to hang in his room.  He is a sweetie, he loves all my stitching and keeps it in his room.  Unfortunately, I have had some really wonderful pillows chewed from my dogs when they fall to the ground.  Oh well.

The beading was time consuming but well worth it.  It really is pretty in person.

Here are 2 WIPS I am working on and made progress over the weekend.  The first is Cirque des Cercles. Hand dyed 25ct Dublin by me using Sulky's 12wt thread 1x1.

Someone found this SAL on this wonderful French blog.  Registration is still going on.  It is called I Love Paris by http://defilenlin.canalblog.com/

I am stitching this on 25ct Dublin 1x1.

Thanks for looking,
Mary

Where did the time go?

Hi,
I can't believe it has been almost a month since I have updated my blog.  There was so much to do to get the boys ready for school.  They started last week but it was so hectic.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day.

Well I finished stitching these during the July but haven't felt like sewing.  They will be made into pillows.

Sorry the picture isn't that good.  I also finished Two Year Supply of Calling Birds by Ink Circles.  This was in the JCS 2011 sneak peak issue.
Stitched it on 25ct teal Lugana 1x1.

I also started working on the golden lab.  Not much done because I will be working on it during the day without kids.


Lastly, I started Cirque des Cercles by Ink Circles.  This will be my evenign/weekend project.  I hand-dyed 25ct Dublin linen and it is worked 1x1.  Thread is Sulky 12wt.

Thanks for letting me share.
